Benenson Warren Residence Dining RoomContemporary Dining Room, New York

In order to create an elegant family-friendly duplex, Specht Harpman combined and renovated two classic six apartments on the Upper West Side. The plan creates a series of appropriately-scaled and thoughtfully decorated rooms for this growing young family. Warm materials connect the children's play and dining spaces to the grown-up living spaces, all within a clean, modern design aesthetic.

Style with a sophisticated stainStained and varnished floorboards will be much tougher and more water-resistant than untreated floorboards, so they can be a godsend in high-traffic areas, such as kitchens and dining areas.A dark stain, such as walnut or chestnut, looks effortlessly grown-up, and it won’t show up marks very easily, either. If you want some shine, finish off the wood with a few coats of clear gloss varnish for maximum durability and a feel-good sheen underfoot.
